#2631129 10/16 GDT : Carolina Hurricanes at Red Wings, 7:30 EST

Ugh, Glenn has an injury? Man, we just cant catch a break!


Anyhow, once again, I won't be able to watch during my commute to Detroit.  But as always GO WINGS! Show this team that last week was a fluke!

Talk about stupid scheduling, tomorrow Montreal game is on at 2pm EST? Going to have some folks turning off the game when MSU/Michigan starts at 3:30.


Not me!  Could care less about the MSU/Michigan game!

Sorry about that, my bad


No worries.  Just want to make sure that all the trades and signings are legit. 



And props for actually putting "re-signed" and not "resigned."   ;)

"I thought our team played so hard," Babcock said. "I felt terrible, as bad as I've felt as a Red Wings coach, after the loss in Tampa and yesterday."


Babcock called veterans Henrik Zetterberg, Pavel Datsyuk and Niklas Kronwall "the best leadership group I've been around in pro sports. Those guys' window isn't as long as a lot of our kids'. At one point this year, we had 15 kids under the age of 28. We need the push from those kids. When I first got here, Datsyuk and Zetterberg and Kronwall were making older players that were here, they made them better. They were the kids that came and made them better and gave them another opportunity. We had a three-year run in '07, '08, '09.


"We need to have another run here. We're not a million miles away. The way we played against Tampa in games 3-7, you think you're a Cup contender, and you're out in the first round three out of four years. It's depressing.


"The great thing about being here is the expectations are high. I put expectations on our board all the time. Our owner expects you to be successful. I love that about this place. You're supposed to win. You're not supposed to be out, you're not supposed to have the team picture and the end of April or May."




That's some positive sounding dialogue.

Don't how much of this I'll be able to see, I'm taking the nieces out to see Cinderella.
But god do I hope we win.

The Wings organization is kinda like Cinderella-just a blue collar franchise wanting to go to the dance.
In my version the roles would be:

The fairy godmother played by Mike Illitch
The evil stepmother holding Cinderella back played by Ken Holland
The dancing mice played by Tatar and Nyquist
Aging but wise King wanting his Children to find happiness played by Zetterberg
The ugly step sisters played by Big E and Quincey
The grand duke(kings right hand man) played by Pav
Lucifer the useless cat played by Weiss
Bruno the slow dog played by Babs
The self obssesed prince holding Cinderellas happiness(Stanley cup) Played by Bettman
And of course the beaten down, pushed around Cinderella would be played by Jimmy Howard
And the raggedy pumpkin taking Cinderella to the dance played by Joe Louis Arena

How about we score MORE THAN ONE FREAKING GOAL. Then we don't have to worry about it.

#2550813 An amazing day for a family of Red Wings fans

Posted by Red Crazy on 21 November 2014 - 04:09 PM

I thought I would share this with you fellow Wings fans.


My family lives in Manitoba and I have been a Wing fan since the mid 80`s so I guess my passion for the team has been passed on to first my wife and now our two boys age 6 and 8. Getting tickets in Winnipeg is usually next to impossible and the thought of getting 4 together is just a dream unless you wanted to pay 2-300 on stubhub. But by luck I was able to get 4 tickets from a season ticket holder that couldn`t attend so we were all set!!!


We are about 2.5 hours drive to Winnipeg so we booked a hotel next to the arena. It turned out that the Wings were staying at the same hotel! We met Bill Roose when we were checking in and he said to hang out in the lobby because the players will be coming down soon to get onto a bus for the arena. We got to meet most of the players and my boys were lucky enough to get 10-12 autographs each! We saw all the Detroit t.v guys etc. It was unbelievable!!! The players were so nice to their fans and taking pictures with the boys.


When we got over to the arena we asked to go down to ice level to watch warm ups. Many of the players tapped on the glass and smiled to the boys. Tatar even tossed a puck over the glass to them! 


It was a great game to watch! 


Anyways I wanted to share this story for those interested. The Red Wings are a class act all the way! From their security guys right to the players! Thank you Red Wings for making a dream come true for our family. We will remember the day forever.

This is the price Holland pays for keeping Cleary around....

Is it just me or does Mantha sound more foreign than most of our Swedish and Russian players? 


Edit: and holy s*** I just had the sound on and had to scroll up. I could have swore that was Babcock not Blashill

Great to see Ericsson go after Nolan for that hit from behind. 


Had they actually squared off Ericsson would've had his hands full with Nolan, but I still like that he went right at him.


Im' a fan of Nolan generally, but that was a clear hit from behind.  Looking away isn't an excuse for hitting a guy in the numbers.
